Chemical and Physical Safety Committee (CPSC)
The mandate of the committee is to develop, recommend, update and maintain policies and procedures applicable to chemical and physical health and safety practices at UCLA in order to promote safe research practices.
The Chemical and Physical Safety Committee (CPSC) was created at the end of FY13 with the reorganization and renaming of the former Laboratory Safety Committee. The CPSC focuses on chemical and physical hazards involved with research in laboratories.
The CPSC has representation from the School of Medicine, the School of Dentistry, the School of Engineering, EH&S, and the Office of Legal Affairs. The faculty chair of this committee also serves as a member of the OVCR Safety Oversight Committee.
